The kid in the pic is my friend.

On the way are paint matched rocker panels and the rear valance along with the front lip. Also 205/50-16's instead of those E36-sized 225/50-16 monsters.

Did you get it that low with lowering springs or are there a set of coil-overs under there. That Front must seriously rub around bumpy corners

Digitalwave would you be interested in the european bumper strips? i noticed you black out the side marker lights, it looks good but the euro strips are smoth without the side lights.

PM me if you want them $180 usd. I also have eyelids

They are matched AP springs and shocks. The springs are 60mm front and 40mm rear, and the front has 10mm deeper spring hats. The front and rear have equal tuck, so the front is a bunch lower. The rear is lower than it is in the pics though, I left the e-brake on after I took the floorjack out so it didn't settle.

I traded my fogs for some parts, I like the blanks better but they look shitty primered... they will be painted along with the lip and rockers soon.

The rims are M5 throwing star replicas. I got them from a private seller since they haven't been made since the mid 90's. They are pretty rare, I've never seen another set of the 4 lug replicas before.

Front lip is Rieger Infinity I. The place I bought it from no longer sells them, but I think www.mms-tuning.com and www.blackforestindustries.com can get them.

Yep, thanks. I deleted my post (while you were responding to it, it seems) asking you the tire size since I found the answer in your original post.

Car looks good, T.J..

TJ, check out the height difference between my e30 and a stock e30..........in person there is a HUGE difference. I never really realized how dumped my e30 actually was until i parked it beside a stock one! Here's a pic..........

I like your car TJ, I like the understated style. It stands out, but it would be equally at home at the beach (of which of course you have plenty *mw*) or at a hotel or casino.

Not many cars can pull that off - many cars that look "sick" at a car show would look silly anywhere else. Yours, is a car for all places.

Nice work! *th-up*

Um, the dealer sells them.

03-30-2005, 07:24 PM
Um, thanx. Any place else?

Mystikal

Not wanting to spend $10-15 dollars at the dealer is hilarious.

Anywhere else that sells OEM parts could get them too, obviously.

It's not that, Im not sure where the closest BMW dealership is....there isn't one here in Iowa City.

I also didn't know that fog lights were an 'option' from 88-91, necessitating "blanks" for those who didnt want them.

Quit hatin ..!.

Not really that much actually, fogs, no ugly rockers, painted iS w/splitter, not as slammed, 5-speed...
